That's all I wanted to post, but I'm sure if I do, Adam will say I should write some more stuff. Hmmm... the roses I planted all had a second round of blooms on them, so I didn't manage to kill them in the first month. This could be a good sign that I am no longer a ruthless plant killer. The rubber plant my grandma gave me is shriveling, but my mom says that's only because it's getting too much sun and it will be fine if I bring it inside. This February I'm going to make a raised bed and plant tons more bare-root roses in rainbow order.
The thing that bothers me about roses is that there are so many breeds with silly names. I want to have a plant in each color, but I don't know if I want a white rose bad enough to buy one called "Pope John Paul II". I briefly considered one called "Rosie O'Donnell" but I draw the line at ordering a "Laura Bush".
Edit: I am such a nerd that I photoshopped a "map" of my rainbow rose garden:
